Guess what??? I am back on line as of a few minutes ago. Verizon expedited my my internet connection being hooked up again. Today's telephone call....yes just one of them...was vastly different from what I went through on Monday...quite a pleasant surprise. So 4.5 hours playing telephone hockey, getting smacked from one person to another like a hockey puck....a 1/2 hour call today along with being without internet service since Monday has garnered me the following:
1) free internet use through 3/12...no charge
2)an additional 3 months of free internet use...no charge
3)an overall drop of $20 a month using my new phone and internet bundled package
4)last but not least, a $100.00 pre-paid bank card after 31 days of internet service
Not a bad pirates booty at all. Strike up one big win for the lowly consumer!!!
